commit breaks libXfont2 on tinycorelinux
Tinycorelinux uses squashfs packages loop mounted and symlinked to the root filesystem.
The commit below between libXfont2-2.0.2 and 2.0.3 breaks libXfont2 on tinycorelinux. If the commit is reversed libXfont2-2.0.4 works.
Is there a way to achieve the original aim of the commit without breaking things on tinycorelinux?
libXfont2 2.0.3 Signed-off-by: Matthieu Herrb <firstname.lastname@example.org> commit 7b377456f95d2ec3ead40f4fb74ea620191f88c8 Author: Michal Srb <email@example.com> Date: Thu Oct 26 09:48:13 2017 +0200 Open files with O_NOFOLLOW. (CVE-2017-16611) A non-privileged X client can instruct X server running under root to open any file by creating own directory with "fonts.dir", "fonts.alias" or any font file being a symbolic link to any other file in the system. X server will then open it. This can be issue with special files such as /dev/watchdog. Reviewed-by: Matthieu Herrb <firstname.lastname@example.org>
